I love Christmas time. But I get caught up in the busyness of all that needs to happen this time of year. I have a feeling that I’m not the only one.
This year, I’ve done two things that have helped me not get lost in the busyness as much.
The first thing we did was take my 15 month old daughter to the mall and pick up a tag to get a child in need a Christmas gift. There was something special about explaining to my daughter that we are helping someone just because we can and it would be special for them, even though we will never meet this person.
The other thing that helped me focus on the Christmas season was shooting a short piece with preschool kids talking about Christmas. It was kinda a last minute project that I rushed through. After it was done, I watched it through and remembered the magic of the season as the kids told the Christmas story.
Check out what the kids had to say!
And don’t forget the reason for this crazy season!
